The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is an SUV like no other. Named after the Cullinan Diamond, the largest gem-quality diamond ever discovered, the Cullinan perfectly exemplifies its namesake’s rarity, luxury, and imposing presence. Introduced in 2018, the Cullinan represents Rolls-Royce's first venture into the SUV market, a move that was a significant departure from its traditional sedan and coupe offerings.
Despite its size and shape, the Cullinan unmistakably carries the Rolls-Royce design language, with the iconic Pantheon grille, "Spirit of Ecstasy" hood ornament, and a silhouette that, despite its high-riding nature, maintains the elegance one associates with the marque.
Powering the Cullinan is a 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine that delivers 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. This colossal power is channeled to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, making the Cullinan capable of 0-60 mph in just under five seconds - impressive for a vehicle that weighs nearly three tons. Despite its sheer mass, the Cullinan provides a famously smooth and silent ride, living up to Rolls-Royce's reputation for unrivaled refinement. Read more
The Cullinan's cabin is a masterclass in luxury. Hand-stitched leather, polished wood, and milled aluminum adorn the interior. Its "coach" doors open to reveal an interior that offers an unparalleled level of comfort and opulence, including a panoramic sunroof, plush carpeting, massage seats, and the latest in-car technology.
Notably, the Cullinan offers a suite of advanced driver assistance systems, including night vision, a four-camera view system with panoramic view, all-round visibility and helicopter view, active cruise control, and a host of other features.
For those desiring outdoor luxury, the Cullinan's tailgate, known as "The Clasp", opens to reveal the optional Viewing Suite. With the touch of a button, two rear-facing leather chairs and a cocktail table elegantly fold out, allowing owners to enjoy a first-class outdoor seating experience.
In terms of sales, the Cullinan has proven a significant success for Rolls-Royce. Despite its high price tag, the model has attracted new buyers to the brand and contributed to record sales figures. In 2019, Rolls-Royce reported its highest sales in its 116-year history, delivering 5,152 cars, a significant portion of which was Cullinans. This success story continued into 2020 and 2021, demonstrating the broad appeal of the luxury SUV.
